People voluntarily choose to join the @NRA. Millions, in fact. We chose to join because we don’t want our fellow Americans to be defenseless or disarmed. We want to educate others on TRUE gun safety. We want to empower others to defend themselves, for last resort. #IAmTheNRA
My dad — who fled Soviet communism — joined @nra several years ago with me after moving from California to Virginia. We simultaneously trained for our CHPs. The NRA fosters safety and rejects criminal behavior #IAmTheNRA
If you conflate criminals with @NRA or law-abiding gun owners, you are doing a disservice to discourse and endangering people’s livelihoods. Members don’t commit heinous crimes. Crux of org’s existence is to combat criminal behavior #IAmTheNRA
I’ve worked in the firearms industry, indirectly / directly, since 2012. I’ve encountered nothing but amazing, adept folks who prioritize safety above all us. The firearms industry exists to combat criminal behavior, not encourage it #IAmTheNRA
My family lived in a society where freedom was limited & guns were banned thanks to an oppressive, omnipresent govt. A disarmed populace leads to more tyranny—a bad path to go down on. Learn from history. We should be so lucky to have #2A and groups like @NRA here. #IAmTheNRA
If you want a taste of my dad’s story from behind the Iron Curtain, here’s our joint @NRATV interview with @CamEdwards at @NRA_GAOS recently #IAmTheNRA
